Edible Ensembles: A Fashion Feast for the Eyes, From Banana Peel Jumpsuits to Kale Frocks

Food meets fashion in these playful fashion illustrations of stylish ladies creatively garbed in fresh produce.

Gretchen Roehrs’s art uses line drawings along with perfectly placed foods to represent the forms, colors, and textures of fashionable clothing: the result is stylish ensembles that would not be out of place in fashion magazines and look good enough to eat!

From oyster shell dresses and pea pod pants to radicchio frocks and tomato handbags, Roehrs’s charming drawings delight with their inventiveness. The illustrations are paired with humorous captions and quotes commenting on the whimsy of fashion. A cornucopia of color and flavor, The Edible Ensemble is a tantalizing treat for the senses, a perfect gift for anyone who loves food and fashion as well as those who like to play with their food.
